  1. Just wondering about the lime. In the instructions, it says to blend together all ingredients, except chicken. Then it also says to slice or squeeze lime over chicken before serving. Does the lime go into the blender, and you just meant add another lime before serving, or was that just misstated and you blend all ingredients together, except chicken and lime?
